Check out my interview for 365 Artists/365 Days!
Briefly describe the work you do.
I explore geographic formations and organisms that are found in nature through acrylic painting. My process begins with photocopy transfers of digital photographs, then I change the reference points and surroundings. Terrain is composed of fractals, so without a frame of reference it can be nearly impossible to determine scale.
I allow spontaneity and chaos to play a role in my paintings, as a way to connect to disorder and entropy. This involves spraying, dripping, and applying color with wide hake brushes onto an absorbent panel. An otherworldly element is added as I contort and manipulate the illusion of space on the painted surface, intuitively working in layers. Pours, drips and blooms of pigment speak to gravity and help to create an illusion of deep space or surface tension.
